Project description:

Festivals and cultural institutions from the contemporary art and audiovisual sector are currently facing many Covid-19 crisis related challenges.. The challenges include issues such as changing landscape of sponsor relations and decreasing funding opportunities, necessity to transfer cultural events online and need for the teams to learn new technical skills and navigation in the online environment on the fly, necessity to be extra creative and stay relevant and close to audiences.

The main aim of the project is therefore creating a platform of cultural organisations and providing the members of the platform with a specific set of information and training relevant to the current cultural environment. Thanks to sharing of know-how across the cultural spectrum (film festivals, modern dance, new circus, musical events etc.) and building of capacities through seminars, training workshops and working meetings, the platform members will be able to better navigate the dynamically changing cultural field in the current conditions of Covid-19 crisis and in post-Covid times.

Project activities include: Workshop focusing on the most pressing topics, One-to-one meetings with experts, Fundraising conference, Training workshop focused on presentation skills and a Fundraising event - opportunity to present their organisations to potential donors.

The project is organised in partnership with Bergen International Film Festival, who will act as a consultant, help with research of the topics and experts. BIFF will have a significant role as they themselves organise a Film Audience Development Conference to discuss the themes revolving around developing and retaining audiences and other topics related to the project.
